Lessons From Failure

Around life’s corner

Failure’s waiting train

Our very fiber

Split open with pain


Chasing newest dreams

Success sometimes waits

Failure comes knocking

What will be life’s fate?



Failure hitting hard


Drawing life’s harsh card


Fear of failure breathes

Spreading, holds us back

Life fogging over

Success now off track


Vulnerable vibes

Feeling passed over

Alone in darkness

Where’s life’s sweet clover?


Lessons from failure

Past trials teach us

Embrace them and learn

Ride fortitude’s bus


With renewed purpose

Learn while improving

Plus motivation

Success now moving

From the words of American writer, Meg Dowell:  “Failure will teach you to be vulnerable.  Failure will show you what it means to chase a dream.  More importantly, your past failures will change the way you value your successes.”
